Phone 327-2805 (Serving Southern Alberta Over Century) In Hanna, Alta., Alf Weik, a farm equipment company sales -manager, was nominated Saturday as Social Credit candidate in Hanna Oyen constituency for the next provincial election. CALGARY (CP) Alberta NDP Leader Grant Notley said Saturday the Progressive Conservative government of Peter Lougheed has been preoccupied with an energy confrontation with Ottawa and has forgotten to take care of the social needs of Alber- tans. Mr. Notley, sole NDP mem- ber in the 75-seat Alberta legislature, told the party's 12th annual convention here the Lougheed government has ignored the promises it made during the 1971 election cam- paign in the fields of education, health, welfare, In- dian rights, and labor. "We should have expected said Mr. Notley. "Lougheed swept to power with the slickest, most expen- sive slogan campaigns ever seen in this province. Everyone over 10 years of age knows that the slicker the advertising campaign, the more suspicious the prod- uct." He said Premier Lougheed "promised Albertans open government, but gave them one of the most closed, presidential-types of govern- ment ever. "Practically all govern- ment business is transacted by a select few of the cabinet in back rooms, bypassing the legislature." Mr. Notley said "they promised to improve the educational system but instead this government has systematically downgraded educational institutions, pitting teachers against school boards, school boards against parents and destroy- ing the autonomy of the un- iversity." He said there is "more red tape than ever" in inter- governmental relations between the provincial and municipal governments. The Alberta government is centering more power in itself, while taking a hand-out attitude toward municipal financing, he said. Mr. Notley said the Con- servative government has failed to help agricultural producers maintain an ade- quate standard of living, and said the government prefers to give millions of dollars to the oil industry while not giv- ing farmers any assistance.

Egg Marketing Board withdraws pamphlet Albertans 'exploited' GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alta. (CP) Bob Chapman, presi- dent of the Alberta Chambers of Commerce, said Saturday that oil consumers in Central Canada are being subsidized at the expense of Albertans and other Western Canadians. Mr. Chapman also told the 56th meeting of the Grande Prairie Chamber of Commerce that he considers it remarkable that of the a barrel charge for Alberta oil goes to the federal government in export tax. He said the Alberta govern- ment receives only a barrel in royalties, while oil companies receive just over after royalties and taxation are deducted. He said that under the es- calated price of oil ex- ploration, oil companies are not able to realize a return on their investment. VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia Egg Marketing Board has withdrawn a pamphlet that claims eating eggs .does not have any significant effect on blood cholesterol levels a claim disputed by medical authorities. Board Chairman Bill Janzen said about pamphlets have been distributed, most of them at the Pacific National Exhibition last summer. He said the pamphlets have been withdrawn "on the advice of our lawyers." The egg handbook states that: "To date there is nothing in research to prove that a high blood cholesterol level causes coronary heart disease. "The human body manufac- tures cholesterol from car- bohydrate. Excluding eggs from yourdiet will not have a significant effect on cholesterol level as your body will continue to manufacture Dr. Paris Constantinides, a specialist in cholesterol research-at the University of B.C., said that both claims are untrue. "Excessive cholesterol is definitely proven to be he said. WANTED TO RENT Approximately sq. ft. of Prime Ground Floor Office Space.

(CP) The chairman of the Royal com- mission on Family and Children's Law told a group of lawyers Saturday that secure accommodation is needed for juvenile offenders in British Columbia. Mr. Justice Tom Eerger of the B.C. Supreme Court said that there is a need for places where children and young per- sons can be held "for remand, for assessment, to enable their parents to catch up with them, or simply to enable them to cool out." Speaking at the mid winter meeting of the B.C. branch of the Canadian Bar Association, Mr. Justice Berger said he did not want to see the large in- stitutions for juveniles re opened in the province. But, he said, in a limited number of cases juvenile offenders have to be "contain- ed in a closed setting." "We think that this can be done in any number of ways that will not be as stark or as brutal as confinement to he said. Mr. Justice Berger said that secure accommodation for Lewis was 'amused' CALGARY (CP) NDP leader David Lewis said Saturday night he'was "amus- ed at the falling out among thieves" when Atlantic Richfield Canada Ltd. an- nounced its withdrawal from the Syncrude oil sands pro- ject. "My heart was not broken when Atlantic Richfield called it he said, addressing the 12th Annual Alberta New Democratic Party conven- tion. "I say to Imperial Oil that any time they want to leave, we'll keep the resources and they can go too." Seeks party leadership OSHAWA, Ont. (CP) The president of the Social Credit Party'of Canada said Satur- day he will seek the national party leadership if Real Caouette decides to step down. Martin Hattersley, an Edmonton lawyer, said in an interview that the party's national council will meet in Ottawa in November to decide if a leadership convention is needed and, if so, where and when it should be held. children should be developed in each community with the help of police, correction workers, social workers, municipal officials, and other interested parties. "Secure accommodation should not be allowed to be developed on a large he said. "It should be decentralized to ensure that .does not occur." The judge said that'provin- cial policy since 1969 has been to try to keep children who have run afoul of the law within his family and com- munity and "that is usually the best place." He said that the policy, which has been carried out by both Social Credit and NDP governments, has led to a decline in the number of children found to be delin- quent. Mr. Justice Berger said Statistics Canada-figures show juvenile delinquency in B.C. actually declined by 13 per cent from 1972 to 1973. He said that the figures were "scant comfort to dis- traught parents, the victims of criminal acts, and an angry but the policy of keeping juveniles out of in- stitutions "is one which serves the best interest of the vast majority of juveniles." "Simply to lock them up will of co.urse protect the but only so long as the period of confinement lasts, after which of course the danger to the public that these youngsters constitute is greater than before."
